Can't offer any help at all so as much use as a waterproof tea bag.

Would you like me to move this to that wee island off the coast of New Zealand - the Ozzy forum?

Watch the cab drivers had a few from the airport and it seems to vary from 35 to 50 AUD into the center depending on what mood there in

Catch the train from the Airport for $5. Plenty of room for your baggage.

The train from the airport is $15 not $5. It's a seperate line from the rest and a total RIP OFF.

Catch one of the CBD hotel shuttles- free if you're staying a night in most CBD hotels- they're out the front but don't worry, the airport staff are really helpful When we travel the four of us this is really good value as the train would cost us $50.

Hello
We too are off to Sydney. As there are 4 of us the best bet seems to be a taxi. I've done the journey myself in a hotel shuttle bus and I think it was about $20, but I did get a great tour of the city (OK... the hotels). On the return to the airport I got the train, about $15 I seem to remember from a couple of years ago.

Used the train, it's fine and regular service and gets you into the CBD.

Sure, but for 2 adults and 2 kids that's $50 Australian, which is pretty much $62 NZ ... for 5 mins!
